UPDATED: SEP 20, 2011 Murky orange-tinted gold with huge foamy head / Perfumed, wet blanket sour yeast and orchard fruit nose / Light, crisp and tart body, with great hop balance and lightly bitter finish / Sour, earthy flavors of green apple, green pepper, lemon, orange, coriander, wet blanket, and grass / It could be a saison, or a wit, but unmistakably JP. A masterpiece of a session beer.

La mia prima Jolly Pumpkin e sono molto più che soddisfatto! Il voto parla da solo direi. Appena messa nel bicchiere ha uno splendido colore biondo e una bellissima schiuma fine persistente, aroma acido di fiori e un pò di frutta, sapore acido, grazie ai lieviti selvaggi brettanomyces, molto floreale e leggermente fruttato! Il retrogusto è leggermente astringente, un pochino amaro e ancora acido, cmq molto gradito e per nulla invadente in ognuna della sue fasi! Molto saison e soprattuto un pò lambic questa birra è una delle migliori mai assaggiate!

Editing my rating with a 2yr old bottle. And holy hell get one of these and forget about it for a good while. All the better qualities of sour beer, and far less of the odd ones. Compared to Oro, a Jolly that starts very sour without the age, and has won ’best of’ for its style.. the 2yr Bam blew away a 1yr Oro drank on the same night (which is incredible in its own right). Seemingly freshly extra tart and expanding on the tongue, with perfect aggression against the taste buds and wonderful, fluid mellowing as it slides over the palate and into a grin-inspiring aftertaste. Bam was one I wasn’t sure would age so incredibly (particularly in comparison to other Jollys you KNOW will age well). But damn, one of the better beers I’ve drank in a good bit. I’ll be grabbin up a few more specifically to age. In truth: I would not give a fresh Bam nearly this high of a rating (probably closer to a 4)... but with age comes grace, wisdom, and knowledge. Or something like that.
